Above the league

Danny Almonte helped his team last night to win the NY City Championship. Link

Almonte could hardly have been better. He struck out the first five hitters he faced and retired 11 of the first 12 batters. The sophomore finished with 11 strikeouts and surrendered just one hit a clean single to center by Gustavo Duran.

"Once I struck out the first three batters, I knew I was going to be good," Almonte said. "They said they wanted to play us, so they got it."

I hope people start to give him credit for his abilities, he made a mistake a few years ago, but so for he has shown great potential.

Good luck Danny!
